SAN FRANCISCO (RSA Conference 2014 Booth 341), Feb. 25, 2014 -- NetCitadel, Inc., the pioneer in innovative threat management solutions, today announced a significant update that expands the analytics capabilities and 3rd party detection support of its ThreatOptics™ threat management platform. This release enhances ThreatOptics’ automated approach to surround detected threats with context and intelligence, thus dramatically reducing incident response times to Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and targeted malware attacks. The new capabilities will be demonstrated this week at the RSA Conference 2014 (Booth # 341).

In this latest release, NetCitadel has enhanced ThreatOptics to include:

- Support for Palo Alto Networks’ WildFire service. ThreatOptics will automatically turn threat reports received by WildFire into protection in multi-vendor large scale environments or generate deep threat profiles that enable analysts to make quick decisions on how best to respond.

- Threat Scores. ThreatOptics will enable administrators to identify high priority incidents based on a variety of factors including incident severity, malware confidence rating, number of reporting event sources and more. Threat scoring greatly enhances security analysts’ ability to respond to high volumes of security alerts by automating the investigation process.

- Reporting and Visualization. ThreatOptics adds industry-leading reporting capabilities that provide Incident Response teams with critical trending information such as attacks over time, recurring internal offenders, frequent sources of attacks and more. This type of actionable intelligence enables security teams to make fact-based decisions to continuously improve their security policies and procedures.

NetCitadel customer, RWE Supply & Trading (RWE-ST), a leading European energy-trading firm, describes how they use ThreatOptics to enhance their threat intelligence and accelerate their incident response. “As a global player in the energy trading business, RWE-ST has invested heavily into making sure our infrastructure is secure,” said Dr. Andreas Rohr, Head of Strategic Information Security. “We recognize that a proper security posture is not just about detection, but it also includes an effective analysis and response capability. NetCitadel ThreatOptics provides our Incident Response team with contextualized data for each incident and the ability to contain infections in real-time. Closing the gap between threat detection and rapid response is crucial to our ongoing mission to keep our IT landscape secure.”

“With this new release, NetCitadel ThreatOptics continues to meet the growing needs of CISOs and Incident Response teams,” said Mike Horn, NetCitadel co-founder and CEO. “Without the proper context about detected threats, it is extremely difficult to investigate, mitigate, and contain these attacks in a timely manner. We are excited to continue delivering on our promise of making real-time incident response a reality.” (continued...)
